While All The Tropes is a trope compendium, it is not static — it is a wiki, constantly changing.
We should therefore write not only with present readers in mind, but with future editors; greater structure helps on both counts. For example, section headings make it easier to find information in an article, and easier for other editors to add information without sacrificing the article's flow.
While All The Tropes is a trope compendium, it is displayed on screens, not paper. Screens have their own readability constraints.
Our motto: Making space for data.
